Our Photo Challenge prompt this week is MYSTERY

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge Prompts are REWARD and TRIAL.

Once again I combine the two in a ‘PHAIKU’ Challenge (my own made-up word), Jen, Denis, Cathy, and when she can, Melissa (it was Melissa who started me doing this) also often/sometimes combine these two challenges in a fun challenge each week – it is not as tricky as it seems – come join us! Leave a link in the Comments below.

Or

Join in the Photo Challenge by leaving a link in the comments here or at Nanacathy‘s, for me to include you in the weekly round-up, which usually appears on Sunday.

Joining in with Cee’s ‘Which Way’ Photo Challenge.

Mystery: Have you ever wondered how to draw a labyrinth? Have you ever wondered how Marc Treanor creates his magical sand designs? Have you ever wondered about the mystery of the power of labyrinths?

I learned to draw labyrinths many years ago but the sand designs remained a MYSTERY until 22.Sept this year when I was lucky enough to be able to join Marc on Mwnt Beach in Ceredigion, Wales for a supremely magical evening to celebrate the Autumn Equinox.

I felt extremely blessed to have been able to be one of those long moving shadows making our way around the path to the centre and out again, whilst a flute and ukulele played and children sat around the fire in the middle.

You can see me carrying a magpie feather on the left, in this photo by Dimlo Sighs, which he has kindly given permission for me to include.

  4. Wondrous post, Sandra. Loved the journey you shared. I feel the magic and mystery in the first image. Marc’s choice of music for his video draws one further into the spiritual profoundness of the experience. ❤
